TO 

A&am SaQrnrtljrr 

In appreciation of his kindness, great patience, 
and human understanding, we, the class of 1934, 
gladly dedicate this volume of the Fabricator. 




Down through the agesvinan has felt the need of protecting 
his body from the elements. 

This has been accomplished by the wearing of clothing. 

The purpose of the New Bedford Textile School is to train 
young men and young women to become skilled in the art of 
supplying the fabric for this necessary commodity. 

FOREWORD 



The Fabricator Staff wishes to express their appreciation 
and thanks to Mr. Gourley, and to the other members of the 
faculty for their excellent co-operation with us, for without their 
aid 1liis book could not have been published.

TO OUR PRINCIPAL, 

William §>mtilj 

whose wise guidance and personal example 
have inspired us with noble aims, we, the grad- 
uating class of 1934, wish to take this opportu- 
nity to show our aj)preciation and acknowledge 
the invaluable services rendered us. 



NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 




HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL 



ATew Bedford is within short distance of Hopedale, Whitinsville, Hyde 
■^ ^ Park, Providence, Pawtucket, Woonsocket, Taunton, and other large 
cotton machinery centers. It is one of the healthiest of the manufactur- 
ing cities in the United States. Picturesquely situated on the extreme 
south shore of Massachusetts it enjoys one of the mildest winter climates 
in New England. 

New Bedford is an especially suitable location for an institution like 
the New Bedford Textile School since it is the largest cotton manufactur- 
ing city of fine yarns and fancy woven fabrics and novelties in the coun- 
try. Its spindles number 1,966,386; and looms 41,692; and employes 
19,755. 

The school was established by the trustees of the New Bedford Tex- 
tile School and incorporated in accordance with Chapter 475, Acts 1895. 
The school went into operation in the fall of 1899, and the first class was 
graduated in 1900. The regular courses were one year in length for the 
first few years, but afterwards increased to three years. Special shorter 
courses are given, however, for which certificates are granted. 

On July 1, 1918 the school became a State institution by an act 
amending the State Constitution. It is still maintained with appropria- 
tions made by the State and City.

THE FABRICATOR 1934 

DEPARTMENTS 

rTlHE New Bedford Textile School has practically all of the departments 
■*- which exist in an up-to-date cotton mill. 

The Cotton Yarn Preparation department, under the head of Mr. 
Gourley, with Mr. Richardson and Mr. Fawcett as his able assistants, is 
the foundation of the cotton fabric. The work in this department de- 
mands the keenest attention of the student. The equipment from the 
breaker thru' to the twisters is of the modern type. There is also a test- 
ing room in which the students are taught the theory and practice of 
handling the testing apparatus. A most thorough knowledge of yarn 
preparation and testing is obtained by any student whose curriculum in- 
cludes this subject. 

The Warp Preparation and Weaving departments are under the head 
of Mr. Acomb. Mr. Acomb's assistants are Mr. Fawcett and Mr. Rich- 
ardson. In this department the student gains valuable knowledge as to 
the work and activities of any modern weave room. When a student has 
finished his training in these departments he has in his possession a val- 
uable asset. 

Mr. Holt, as the head of the Design department has as his assistants 
Mr. Fawcett and Mr. Richardson. In this department the student is in- 
structed as to the various types of weaves and designs, and how to prop- 
erly analyze cloth, and to prepare designs and weaves for the weave 
room. 

The Knitting department is under the direct care of Mr. Manning. 
This department is fully equipped with the various types of modern 
knitting machinery, and it also includes a testing lab, a silk winding room, 
and a dyeing room. 

The Mechanical department comprises of courses in steam engineer- 
ing, mill engineering, electricity, drafting, etc. Mr. Crompton is the 
head of this department and he is ably assisted by Mr. Bayreuther and 
Mr. Walton. This department occupies a good part of the first and sec- 
ond floors of the new building. Graduates of this course have proven 
their worth in the textile world. 

Last, but not the least, is the Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing de- 
partments, headed by Mr. Busby, with Mr. Weymouth and Mr. Brooks 
as his assistants. These departments have two modern laboratories, a 
weighing room, lecture room, and a print room. Converting and finish- 
ing machines are located in the basement under the laboratories. This 
department has proven itself to be very popular, and has turned out many 
able and efficient men.

1934 THE FABRICATOR 



SENIOR CLASS HISTORY 
Tn September, 1931, an enterprising group of young men and women 
-*- entered the New Bedford Textile School. History was in the making, 
and we were out to make history, in fact, this whole thing is a history. 
Many of us went into the Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Course to 
spend three years in an extensive study of the chemistry of Dyeing and 
Finishing. The General Cotton Course was quite popular with a good 
sized roster, a lone member made up the Knitting Course and future fa- 
mous mechanics were enrolled in the two years' Mechanical Course. 

With the above populace to draw from, we held our first class meet- 
ing for the purpose of choosing class officers. The resulting election pro- 
duced as our officers: President, Fred Sylvia; Vice President, Jerry 
Ferland; Treasurer, Irving Frost, and Secretary, Evelyn Smalley. 

Laurence Rossiter was awarded the William E. Hatch medal for 
highest scholastic standing in the General Cotton Course. 

During the first year, our class was well represented in sports. In 
soccer, Cleveland, Gero and "Bub" Cushman were very active. Basket- 
ball saw Gero, Cushman and Hiller. Baseball called on the services of 
Gero, Jasionek, Silva, and Cleveland. Future members of the Davis Cup 
team were Axtell, Heinser, Rossiter and Machado. 

September, 1932, saw the return of a somewhat smaller group to 
start where we left off the previous year. Older in years and experience, 
we set out to eclipse all previous records in, perhaps, the most interesting 
scholastic year of all. The work became more individualistic, calling on 
each person's resources and ingenuity and ambition. This year sounded 
a tragic note for we lost a most beloved classmate and friend when 
Tommy Gero left this life to go to his Maker. 

Business-like we proceeded, and in a class meeting we elected the 
following to lead us through a year of activity: President, Howard 
Bates ; Vice President, Laurence Rossiter ; Treasurer, Irving Frost ; Sec- 
retary, Edmund Dupre. Social activities were few and far between, the 
Senior Class dance and Fraternities supplying most of the fun. The fol- 
lowing were appointed as Associate Editors of the Fabricator Staff: 
Stephen Delano and David Judson. 

We were again well represented in sports. The soccer team was 
managed by Howard Bates and abetted by Cleveland, Jasionek, Gero, 
Edmundson, Pickering, Dupre, Mello and Turcotte. Baseball saw Cleve- 
land again cavorting about the diamond. Manager Norman Edmonson 
arranged a very fine schedule. Frank "Bollea" Mello was again our star 
pitcher, ably backed up by Jasionek, Turbak, Pickering, Turcotte, Holm- 
strom, Holden, and Silva. Basketball caw Mello, Hiller, Turcotte, Pick- 
ering. Chris Edmundson, Axtell, Rossiter and Machado were mainstays 
on the Tennis squad.

THE FABRICATOR 1934 

September, 1933, and a group of young men and women returned to 
the most important and active year of all. Well fortified preparation 
was made to carry us on thru' this very important period of our school 
careers. Officers were duly elected in the persons of: President, Laur- 
ence Rossiter ; Vice President, David Judson ; Treasurer, Norman Ed- 
monson ; Secretary, Lillian Bosse. At the same meeting, the staff which 
was to publish the 1934 edition of the Fabricator was elected. They are : 
Editor-in-Chief, Frederick Sylvia; Business Manager, Edmund Dupre; 
Advertising Manager, Edward Murphy; Literary Editor, James Davies; 
Art Editor, Warren Brand; Sports Editor, Frank Cleveland, and Joke 
Editor, George Axtell. The whole staff was aided by the faculty advisor, 
Mr. Thomas H. Gourley. 

Social activities have proven very successful this year. A Senior 
dance was held November 15, 1933. The committee for this dance was 
Chairman, Edmund Dupre. Other members on the committee were Mil- 
ton Ashley, David Judson, Fred Sylvia, and Howard Livesley. The dance 
was well attended, and may I say here, that both from a social and finan- 
cial viewpoint, it was very successful. Plans were made for a second 
dance to be held April 4, 1934. This was ably run by a competent com- 
mittee, headed by Albert Varnum, Jr. Others on the staff were Philip 
Reynolds, David Judson, Frank Cleveland and Bert Silva. 

It was duly voted at a class meeting to dedicate our Fabricator to 
that very good teacher in the mechanical department, Mr. Adam Bay- 
reuther. He certainly merits the honor as he is one of our most conscien- 
tious instructors. 

Ring committees, prom and banquet committees were appointed by 
our president and they were busily engaged in carrying out the functions 
of their individual committees. The Ring Committee was comprised of 
Norman Edmonson, Stuart Holden, and Fred Sylvia. The Prom and 
Banquet committees were: Chairman, Edmund Dupre, and assistants: 
Miriam Fenton, Fred Sylvia, Albert Varnum and George Axtell. 

Sports held a premium on many of our boys. Our soccer team was 
managed by David Judson. In fact, the whole nucleii of the team was 
made up of the Senior class. Others connected with the team were Mello, 
Turbak, Cleveland, Edmundson, Davies, Turcotte, Jasionek, Kershaw, and 
Pickering. The basketball team was managed by James Davies and 
among our most versatile players was Frank Cleveland. Mello, Picker- 
ing and Miller were also very active members of the squad. 

The above extracts are actualities and facts, merely a resume of the 
happenings of our group of young men and women. We entered this in- 
stitution of learning to prepare ourselves for that most important battle, 
—Life. We are leaving this institution to help and to be helped. 

Let us remember the class motto — "He who maintain*, obtains."

THE FABRICATOR 1934 

CLASS PROPHECY 
The Time— June, 1954. 
The Place — Madame Fenton's Tent on the lot of the Kuwaski Assorted 

Freak Show. 
The Characters — Madame Fenton, Sorceress Supreme and "Bubbles" 

Reynolds, Trapeze Artist (better known as the man on the flying 

trapeze) . 
Enter — Madame F. and Bubbles, engaged in conversation. 

Bubbles — Do you realize, Madame, that today is the 20th anniversary 
of our graduation from dear old Textile School. 

Madame F. — Yes Philip — er pardon me — Bubbles, I do realize it and 
it has also occured to me that it wouldn't be a bad idea to check up on the 
old gang and see what they're doing. So if you're interested, stick around 
while I gaze into the crystal and we shall see what's what. 

Bubbles — A splendid idea Madame, let's go. 

Madame F. — Quiet please. Ah, the mist disappears, the cloak of 
mystery is unfolding. I see Mift Ashley. Milt has devoted his life in 
an attempt to cross a Ford with a Chevrolet and still not merge their 
personalities. There's Moody Axtell, why he's receiving the Michael 
Prize, awarded him by the American Society of Science in honor of his 
recently published thesis on "Two Million and One Ways of Thumbing 
the Fairhaven Bridge". Lillian Bosse has taken C. F. Wing's up on their 
slogan, "We Furnish Homes" — they're doing nicely thank you. Why 
there's Warren Brand ; I see him as the chief instigator of a world-wide 
crusade against all barbers using "Jeris" — that sweet smelling hair tonic. 
Now I see Frank Cleveland, he has developed into a socialistic roustabout 
and ringer of door-bells due to his having been thwarted in an attempt 
to bomb the Empire State Building. Shoczolek, Boehler and Wilkinson, 
fellow conspirators, are making elaborate plans to destroy the Animal 
Kingdom, starting with Kuwaski's show. 

Bubbles — That's too bad about my old pal Cleveland, but tell me did 
Jimmie Davies remain a bachelor as he said he would. 

Madame F. — No Jimmie did not remain a bachelor. I see him now 
living on Locust street and he is the proud author of "How to be Right 
Though Married". I see both Ed Dupre and Ed Murphy sharing honors 
as head research chemists in a special laboratory at St. Luke's Hospital. 
Norman Edmonson has finally taken that much delayed and much talked 
about trip to New York. He will continue on to Washington where he is 
to (ill the newly created cabinet position as Secretary of Chemical Af- 
fairs. Why there's the class Wimpy, you remember, Irving Frost. lie 
lias invented a machine that turns out hamburger sandwiches complete. 
'I'h is machine has thrown hundreds of men out of work and Ray Beau- 
vais, who has developed into a Communist, is now planning to bomb 
Frost's residence on thai account. 

<28> 



1934 THE FABRICATOR 



Bubbles — Tell me, Madame, did Bert Silva ever sell his boat? 

Madame F. — No, Bert never did sell that boat, it finally sunk on him. 
I see Bert now successfully filling the office of Mayor of Dartmouth and 
he has Cibrowski locked in the town jail for murdering the English lan- 
guage. What's this I see, why its the Rosyl Manufacturing Co., produc- 
ers of high quality combed yarns. It has been established by Rossiter 
and Sylvia. They have Ernest Hall working for them as Boss Comber 
Man and Cibrowski, when he is not in jail, is head of the Spinning Room, 
while Al Varnum is Chief Mechanic. But let's get on with the rest of 
them. Who else was in the class? 

Bubbles — There is still Livesley, Herzog, Holden and Chris Edmund - 
son to be accounted for. See if you can find them in the crystal. 

Madame F. — Yes I see them all. Howard Livesley is an instructor 
in Steam Engineering back in dear old Textile. He learned it so well 
that he never forgot it. Herzog and Holden are assisting Howard and 
at the same time they are working on a steam boiler that is so simple that 
it requires no studying or figuring. Now I see others. Why there's 
Stanley Turbak and he is appearing in vaudeville with Muggleton. They 
are doing a dancing act but it's not so good as neither of them has learned 
how to dance as yet. Jasionek I see as a teacher at the dear old alma 
mater. The Faculty was determined to get him to attend school even if 
they had to pay him for it. I see Chris Edmundson as a married man 
and his son is preparing to enter Textile School in the fall. Ripley and 
Kershaw, I see, have moved to Adams Street so that they won't have far 
to go on Saturday nights. Turcotte has formed an All American Soccer 
Team and he has challenged the best teams in the country but so far 
Turcotte is the only man on the team. Frank Mello has at last realized 
his ambition to be a captain in the National Guards. His company con- 
sist of Mello, Mello, Mello, etc. Dave Judson has obtained a very en- 
viable position of chief knitter in the Ower's Hoisery Mill. 

Bubbles — What about Machado, Giante, Hiller, Holstrom and Pick- 
ering? Have you forgotten them? 

Madame F. — No, I see Machado now and I am sorry to say that he 
is a business failure. He set himself up in the brewing business but he 
made the mistake of when testing the brew of using too large a sample 
so that he never had enough left to sell. I find Ray Hiller still playing 
the part of Levitious in a new series of Hollywood Productions on the 
life of Joe Palooka. Holstrom is acting the part of Joe Palooka while 
"Pete" Pickering takes the part of Knobby, acting it with gestures. 
Giante I find as the most famous flagpole sitter of the day. He modestly 
says that it comes natural. Ah— the crystal grows cloudy, I can see no 
more. Well, let's go out for a smoke.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1935 

Tn the fall of 1932 a new group of students found their bewildered way 
■*■ into the library of the N. B. T. S. where we were enrolled into the 
various courses of study. The students enrolled in the Chemistry course 
were conducted over into the laboratory, while the cotton students were 
conducted to one of the classrooms on the second floor of the main build- 
ing. After filling out our schedules we were taken around to the rooms 
of our various instructors from whom we obtained lists of the supplies 
we would need throughout the year. 

Soon after the first few weeks of school we were pledged to the 
various fraternities, and our school work was begun in earnest. 

We managed to survive the midyear and final exams without any 
serious mishaps. Tetrault proved, to be the honor student of the class and 
he was awarded the William E. Hatch medal. Thus ended our first year, 
and amid friendly goodbyes we departed to enjoy the summer vacation. 

In September, 1933, we returned to school and renewed our friend- 
ships of the past year, and started in to make this a banner year. 

After the first few weeks of school the need for class officers neces- 
sitated the calling of a class meeting at which the following were elected : 
Frank Szynal, President; Milton Herstoff, Vice President; Ann Allen, 
Secretary, and Christopher Donnelly, Treasurer. Two associate editors 
to serve on the Fabricator staff were elected, these two being John 
Greaves, Jr. and Thomas Gillette. 

Several members of the class have shown up well in the various 
athletic activities of the school. Crowley and Greaves were the soccer 
players, while Clark and Crowley did well for themselves on the basket- 
ball floor. Last season's tennis team was ably supported by Johnson, 
Sherman, Clark and Howland, with Greaves and Lewis as our luminaries 
in baseball. This coming baseball season will probably find Szynal ready 
to show his stuff, and Milt Herstoff acting as the baseball manager. 

The class of 1935 takes this opportunity to wish the graduating class 
much success and prosperity in their venture into the business world. 
May luck and happiness be with you always.

Milt Herstoff is often seen over in the Wilds of Fort Phoenix, we

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1936 



ON the opening day of school last -September a large group of us gath- 
ered in the library awaiting to be registered, and meanwhile we list- 
ened to the upper classmen greeting one another and to the yarns that 
they swapped. We were a pretty docile group wondering what was go- 
ing to happen next. However, we soon found our places over in the lab- 
oratory, or up in one of the class rooms on the second floor of the main 
building. After filling out our schedules we were conducted to the rooms 
of the various instructors from whom we obtained a list as to the sup- 
plies that we would need throughout the year. 

Our next surprise came when some of us received invitations to the 
open nights of the various fraternities. After this came the well known 
"Rush Week", which some of us will never forget and which afforded 
much amusement to the others> Some of us were fortunate to be pledged 
to one of the various fraternities. 

The cotton division of the class is one of the largest to be enrolled 
in the school during the past few years. They have already established 
a name for themselves, and their pranks and other activities are well 
known by the rest of the school. 

The Chemistry is by no means small, and they also have made a name 
for themselves. The marksmanship and the light-fmgeredness of some 
of the students are well known to the rest of the class, much to their 
grief and sorrow. 

During the latter part of March the class was called together in a 
class meeting for the purpose of electing class officers. After much 
haggling back and forth between several of the class and amid much con- 
fusion, the following officers were elected: President, Andrew Adams; 
Vice President, Laurence Durfee ; Secretary, Ruth Dutton, and Treas- 
urer, Charles Sherman. 

The school year is fast drawing to a close, and at this time the class 
heartily joins with the rest of the school in wishing the Seniors much 
luck and success when they venture out into the world after their grad- 
uation in June.

A FTER returning to school last fall from a pleasant vacation, the mem- 
*■ *• bers of Delta chapter once more banded together, and proceeded to 
begin the school year, full of enthusiasm. 

We held our annual dinner and smoker soon after the start of school, 
as soon as everything was underway and we had become adjusted to our 
various schedules. The dinner was held at the summer home of brother 
Raymond Ripley, on Sconticut Neck, Fairhaven. This was a most pleas- 
ant evening, as there was a goodly crowd present, consisting of invited 
guests, instructors, alumni members, and active members. Everyone 
present was well pleased with the course of events. 

After "Rush Week" we found that we had pledged six new members, 
these fellows being, George Mitchell, Edward Begin, Julius Galuska, 
Wendal] Keith, Robert llowarth, and Charles F. Lovejoy, — all fellows who 
have since proven their worth.

THE FAB RICA TOE 



The new pledgees received their first degree at the summer home of 
alumni brother Lee Norris, in Padanaram. This was quite an affair, as 
there was a goodly number of alumni members present, as well as active 
members — much to the discomfort of the pledgees. However, they all 
survived the evening. The second and third degrees were conferred on 
the pledgees at a regular meeting of the chapter. 

Just before Xmas, Delta chapter held one of their well known dances 
in the Gulf Hill Banquet Hall. This turned out to be a very successful 
evening, and everyone who attended this dance had a most pleasant 
evening. 

We have been fairly well represented in sports this year. Delta 
chapter was represented on the soccer squad by Cleveland, Pickering, and 
Edmundson, with Judson as manager of soccer. In basketball we were 
represented by Pickering, while baseball will probably find Greaves, 
Pickering, Cleveland, and Silva out there doing their part. 

Summer is fast approaching and plans for our annual farewell party 
will soon be underway. This is an event which is looked forward to 
with the most pleasure. 

Delta chapter will lose twelve men upon graduation. To these fel- 
lows, and to the other graduates, we extend our heartiest congratulations. 
May fortune smile on you in your future work. Good luck, brothers, and 
may you always uphold the honor and traditions of the Delta Kappa Phi 
Fraternity — the oldest textile school fraternity in America.

PHI PSI FRATERNITY 

A T the opening of school in September, thirteen active Phi Psi mem- 
^*- bers returned determined to make the oncoming year a banner one. 

At the end of "Rush Week" we had added five new men to the roll, 
namely : Russell Carroll, Laurence Giguerre, Charles Sherman, Carl 
Hardy, and William Wood. 

The first and second degrees were administered at Carpenter's Hail. 
These painless rites were followed by a night which the candidates will 
never forget. Then, as a special treat they were taken for a long, long 
ride, and permitted the luxury of walking home. 

The third degrees were held in the Hotel Bradford in Boston, which 
was a never-to-be forgotten affair. 

Our annual winter dance was held at the Tabitha Inn, Fairhaven, 
and everyone who attended spent a most enjoyable evening. 

Phi Psi was well represented in tennis during the '33 season by 
Ralph Clark, Joseph Crowley, Henry Sherman, and Earle Johnson. The 
soccer squad was aided by Joseph Crowley and Edmund Dupre. The 
basketball squad of the season of '33 and '34 was supported by Ralph 
Clark, Joseph Crowley, Edgar Stowell, and Carl Hardy. 

To our departing brothers and to the other graduates we wish the 
best of success, and may fortune favor you in your future work.

1934 THE FAB RICA TOR 



~Ty ETA Chapter has not been quite as active this year as in former years 
-*-' due to there being but one active member at school. However, the 
Beta Alumni have been able to make up somewhat for this lack of active 
members by their whole-hearted support in attending all meetings and 
social functions of the Fraternity. Much credit is due them for their 
efforts in making this a successful year. 

October 10 saw the fraternal year successfully set underway with a 
smoker at the Hotel Mellen in Fall River. This was a very enjoyable 
and colorful affair. It was run jointly by Beta and Gamma Chapters. 
Guests included members from Fall River, New Bedford, and Alpha 
Chapter in Philadelphia. Outside guests included men from New Bed- 
ford and Durfee Textile Schools. 

At the Junior Class elections, our one active member, Milton W. 
Herstoff, was honored by being elected Vice-President of the class. 

An induction banquet was enjoyed by all who attended. The ban- 
quet was held at the Tabitha Inn in Fairhaven. A dancing and singing 
act brought in from Providence furnished the entertainment at the affair. 
One Gamma man was inducted. The annual convention held in New 
York found Beta well represented. The annual dance held in February 
proved every bit as successful as expected. This was a closed formal 
dinner dance at the Hotel Biltmore in Providence. 

And so another year is brought to a close. Another group of grad- 
uates goes out to try its luck at making a name for itself in the textile 
world. Beta Chapter of the Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity joins with all the 
undergraduates in wishing the graduating class of June 1934 the great- 
est success. May they prosper in whatever they may endeavor to do 
after graduation, and may they always feel justly proud of their connec- 
tion with the New Bedford Textile School.

rTlHE Inter-Fraternity Council of New Bedford is composed of three 
■*- fraternities, Phi Psi and Delta Kappa Phi of the school and a national 
non-academic fraternity, Phi Sigma Chi. 

The Inter-Fraternity Council, better known as the I F C, was origi- 
nated in the Spring of 1933. At that time it was the aim and purpose 
of the council to increase the interest of fraternalism and promote good 
feeling within the three fraternities. With but a short time to work in 
an elimination tennis tournament was played off and a few games of 
horseshoes attempted with little success. 

With the new school term the Inter-Fraternity Council started with 
renewed vigor. To keep the interest in the IF C alive, it was voted to 
award a trophy at the end of the school year to the fraternity that ex- 
celled in fraternalism and fraternal activities. A trophy award system 
based on fraternal activities and sports was worked out. As a result a 
series of football games were held in the Fall. After football came bas- 
ketball. Tennis and possible baseball are to follow in their seasons. 

The biggest fraternal social event of the year promises to be the 
Inter-Fraternity Council Dance. It will be held April 19, 1934, at the 
New Bedford Hotel. It has been proposed to make this an annual event. 
The success of this one will insure its repetition. 

Now a word to the future members of the Council : The future of 
the Inter-Fraternity Council, its aims and purposes, hopes and achieve- 
ments are in your hands. Are you going to continue them? You have 
seen the results of the earnest efforts of the first Council. Can you per- 
fect them? If you can, go to it, and work to keep that spark of real 
fraternalism alive. 

We of the Council wish to take this opportunity to thank every fra- 
ternity member for the part he played in carrying out the work of the 
[nter-Fraternity Council.

•T. S. — Vocational 





In Textile's initial game of the season, she accounted for a tie with 
her most difficult rival. Substitutions on both sides were numerous, 
owing to the fact that it was also Vocational's opener. 

After a snappy getaway, the Millmen drew first blood by virtue of a 
goal by Jasionek. However, Vocational not to be outdone, scored late in 
the first half to tie the score. 

Despite a fine exhibition of soccer on the part of both teams, the sec- 
ond half was scoreless. Both defenses were practicably impregnable 
stonewalls. The final blast of the referee's whistle found both teams 
battling to their utmost to put that precious leather past the enemy cita- 
del. 

Mello, Jasionek, and Turbak, along with Davies and Edmonson, ex- 
celled for Textile; while Holden and Captain Monty appeared to be in 
good form for Vocational. The final score was 1-1. 

N. B. T. S. — Tabor Academy 

Textile scored it's first victory by outplaying Tabor Academy to win 
to the tune of 7 - 2. 

Soon after the opening whistle, Hood, on a pass from Clouter, tallied 
to give Tabor a 1-0 lead. 

In the second period Textile came right back, and Edmonson stabbed 
the leather past Tabor's goalie to tie the score. However, Wray, of 
Tabor, made a goal, and at half time Tabor led, by the score of 2 - 1. 

This lead was short lived, for Turcotte booted a beautiful shot by 
Tabor's goalie. Edmonson again stepped into the limelight and scored 



~«g{48 };*■ 



1934 THE FABRICATOR 



no less than four goals, to put the Millmen in the lead for the rest of 
the game. 

Davies and Edmonson, supplemented by the hardworking Cleveland, 
starred on Textile's forward line; while on the defense, Leahy, Mello and 
goalie Szulik were prominent. Final score was Textile 7, Tabor 2. 

N. B. T. S. — Durfee Textile 

New Bedford Textile encountered it's second tie of the season when 
it journeyed to Fall River to meet Durfee Textile. Durfee opened the 
scoring when White scored on a pass from Kozak. Both teams played 
defensively well, and the period ended 1 - in favor of Durfee. 

Shortly after the start of the second period, Pickering dribbled nicely 
past the Durfee fullbacks, and tied the score. Durfee scored again by 
Costa booting a sizzler past Szulik, playing goalie for New Bedford. 
Durfee held the lead until three minutes of play were left, when Davies 
sent a nice shot between the uprights, to again tie the score. For the 
remainder of the game each team's forward lines "peppered" one anoth- 
ers' goals, but to no avail. 

The stars for New Bedford were Davies, Pickering, and Mello. The 
final score was 2-2. 

N. B. T. S. — Vocational 

For the second time this season the New Bedford Vocational and 
Textile elevens fought bitterly to a 1 - 1 draw. 

The game was staged at Battery Park, and both teams were handi- 
capped by a cold wind which blew throughout the entire game. The 
game resulted in a test of defensive strength, which was well done by 
the both teams. 

During the first half Davies scored on a rebound shot from Edmon- 
son, placing Textile in the lead. The ball bounced out of the hands of 
Vocational's goalie, and Davies, unconscious of an oncoming "sandwich", 
snared the ball into the net. 

Soon after the turn-around, Captain Monty of Vocational proved to 
be the thorn in the side of the Millmen. He dribbled past three Textile 
players, and sent a shot through goal-tender Szulik. From there on the 
play was confined mostly to midfield, with an occasional shot being exe- 
cuted, but with no results. The final score was 1-1. 

N. B. T. S. — Durfee Textile 

By virtue of two penalties, Durfee Textile defeated New Bedford 
Textile for the first time in three years at Buttonwood Park. Although 



--€{ 49 jfln- 



THE FABRICATOR 1934 



New Bedford had the edge of the play throughout the game, the breaks 
were against her. 

Durfee attained the lead in the first half by making good a penalty 
shot. New Bedford then settled down, and she was rewarded with a 
goal scored by Christy Edmundson. 

New Bedford forced the play from the start of the second half, but 
Durfee was again awarded a penalty shot, which she made good, and 
she kept the lead for the remainder of the game. 

This was the first defeat handed to New Bedford this season; the 
final score being Durfee 2, New Bedford 1. 

N. B. T. S. — Fitchburg Teacher's College 

After successive defeats in the past four years, a spirited Fitchburg 
Teacher's College team upset the Millmen in an extremely aggressive 
game, which was played on Fitchburg's home grounds. 

There were ideal conditions under which to play, and the result was 
a fast, rough game, affording thrills galore to each team's rooters. 

New Bedford was unaccustomed to the methods of officiating as 
applied at Fitchburg, and the result was that our captain was unjustly 
ousted from the game. We were forced to play the final quarter minus 
his services, constituting ill feeling among the players. 

Hammond was outstanding for the Teachers; while Mello, Turbak, 
Leahy, and Cleveland starred for the Millmen. The final score was 
Fitchburg 5, Textile 0. 

N. B. T. S. — Harvard Junior Varsity 

Putting a fitting close to a fairly successful season, New Bedford 
Textile defeated the Harvard Junior Varsity. 

Pete Pickering, speedy little center forward, was the star of the 
game as he tucked away two of the three goals for Textile. Pickering 
opened the scoring in the third period, beating Wallace on a hard drive 
directly in front of the goal mouth. Harvard evened the score soon 
afterward, on a penalty shot by Kellog. 

Pickering again tallied in the final period or: a fine piece of individ- 
ual dribbling. Cleveland ended the scoring by the conversion of a pen- 
alty shot, caused by a Harvard man handling the ball in the restricted 
area. 



•<g(50)3i"- 



1934 THE FABRICATOR 

Coach Desmarais presented a revamped line-up consisting of Cap- 
tain Mello at center half, Turbak at full back, and Leahy on the right 
wing. The new combination gave the Millmen a stronger defense than 
they had all season. 

Davies, Cleveland, Pickering, and Leahy starred for Textile; while 
Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., was outstanding for Harvard. The final 
score was Textile 3, Harvard Junior Varsity 1. 

OUR MANAGER 

Last, but not least, let us mention our aimiable manager, Dave 
Judson, who most efficiently did all of the dirty work, and kept the boys 
well supplied with socks and gum. He did a first rate job all through 
the season, and deserves credit for his work.

N. B. T. S. — Alumni 
In the opening game of the season Textile outplayed the "grads" to 
win by the score of 35 to 29. The alumni aggregation consisted of the 
cream of the crop of Textile's last four teams. Teamwork was lacking, 
however, and the reoresentatives of N. B. T. S. took advantage of this 
fact and combined to produce a fast, well-clicking combination to start 
their lengthy season off with a win. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. College of Education 

Textile scored its second victory by trouncing the "Educators" from 
Providence. The final score was Textile 35, R. I. 13. Both teams started 
off at a fast clip, but Textile gradually eased off to a lead that disheart- 
ened its opponents. Aulisio was the big gun for Textile as he scored 19 
points. The Millmen's defense was particularly strong, accounting for 
the visitors' low score. 

N. B. T. S. — Newport Torpedo Trade 

In a hard and fast fought game Textile was downed by the close 
score of 23 to 19. The score was close throughout the entire game, with 
no more than four points separating the two teams after the first period. 
The Newport quintet led 12 to 11 at the end of the first half and their

N. B. T. S. — Vocational 

By overcoming Vocational to the score of 27 to 23, Textile scored it's 
third win in four starts. Trailing at the end of a ragged first half, the 
Millmen went into the lead in the first few minutes after the whistle in 
the second half and were never headed again. This victory served as an 
inspiration to Textile, for Vocational was regarded as having a formid- 
able team this season. 

N. B. T. S. — Providence College Freshmen 

Led by the pick of former prep and high school stars, the Friars 
first year men outclassed Textile by the score of 56 to 27. The visitors 
had a big advantage in height over the Textile team with the center and 
guards being in the six foot class. This advantage broke up many of 
the Textile rallies and proved N to be a deciding factor in getting the ball 
off of the backboard. Textile was the first opponent able to hold the 
Providence freshmen to a score lower than 60 points. 

N. B. T. S. — Holy Family 
The parochial school boys pulled the surprise of the season by de- 
feating Textile to the score of 24 to 20. Holy Family took advantage of 
the laxity of the Millmen and came through with a decisive win. Both 
teams played irregular basketball, showing no- form whatever. The Tex- 
tile boys found themselves near the end of the game, but they lacked the 
final punch that results in victory. 

N. B. T. S. — Bryant Stratton 
Textile list it's second straight to the fast traveling Bryant Stratton 
five by the score of 48 to 33. Aided by their advantage in height the 
Providence boys scored almost at will. The winners exhibited a fine 
brand of floor work and basket shooting. The passwork of Textile 
clicked in the third quarter when they outscored their opponents. Aulisio 
and Crowley at their forward berths played well for "Tech". 

N. B. T. S. — Vocational 
The absence of Aulisio and Mello proved a handicap to Textile. After 
a fairly close first quarter, the Tech boys were fairly swept off of their 
feet by the whirlwind attack of the trade school boys. Textile was held 
scoreless in the third period, while Vocational ran it's score to 32. In the 
fourth quarter Vocational again outscored Textile, and the game ended 
with the Vocational boys the victors by the score of 40 to 10.

N. B. T. S. — R. I. College of Pharmacy 
The Textile five journeyed to Providence to take the pharmacists into 
camp by the final score of 42 to 27. Throughout the game Tech's lead 
was never in danger. At the end of the third period Coach Szulik in- 
serted Textile's second team, and they continued the scoring tactics of 
the first string men. 

N. B. T. S. — Becker College 
A hard fighting Textile school five went down to defeat at the hands 
of the Becker College quintet in a slashing game that could have gone 
either way right up to the final whistle. The score was Becker 38, Tex- 
tile 31. The officiating, however, was quite discouraging to the New Bed- 
ford players. The game was close until Aulisio was unjustly ousted for 
the supposedly commital of his fourth personal fowl. From then on 
Becker oozed out a seven point margin to clinch the contest. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. College of Education 
The future again bowed to Textile in a grim contest by the score of 
28 to 20. The New Bedford forwards completely outwitted their oppon- 
ents by sinking baskets that were the result of fast floor-work. The R. I. 
boys obtained many of their points by long shots due to their inability 
to penetrate the defense put up by Szulik, Aulisio and Mello. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. College of Pharmacy 
The pharmacists pulled a surprise on Textile by pinning a 26 to 17 
defeat on the Millmen. It seemed that the New Bedford boys were glued 
to the floor, as they appeared very slow in the break-aways. The Phar- 
macy boys exhibited a much revamped quintet in comparison to the team 
that went down to defeat at the hands of Textile just a few weeks pre- 
vious. 

N. B. T. S. — Durfee Textile School 
New Bedford lost its opener of a two game series against her old 
rival, Fall River, by the score of 44 to 32. The game was really closer 
than the score indicates, for throughout the game both teams battled neck 
and neck. In the last period, however, Aulisio, New Bedford's star for- 
ward was ousted from the game on his fourth personal foul. From then 
on Durfee gradually edged away to pile up a sufficient lead with which to 
carry off the laurels. Contrary to former years, the game was lacking 
from rough tactics which both teams used to apply in their endeavor to 
win the series. 

N. B. T. S. — Becker College 
Avenging an early season defeat, the Millmen played heads-up bas- 
ketball against a strong Becker outfit. The floorwork and shooting of 



-Hg{ 53 



THE FABRICATOR 1934 



the Textile boys excelled and allowed them to walk away with a victory. 
The game was fairly rough, but the referee located the source of the 
trouble, and Becker's star right forward was ordered from the floor. 

N. B. T. S. — Bryant Stratton 
The powerful Bryant Stratton quintet, led by Duckworth and Swan- 
son over-powered the Millmen to make it her 18th win in 19 starts. The 
Providence team was superior in all departments, her five man defense 
being a pleasure to watch. During the last quarter Tech burst forth with 
a surprising attack and out-scored her opponents by quite a margin. 
However, the lead piled up by Bryant Stratton earlier in the game could 
not be offset by the fighting Textile boys. 

N. B. T. S. — Durfee Textile School 
Playing under a severe handicap through the loss of Szulik and Mello 
through sickness, New Bedford Textile made a brilliant, but unsuccessful 
attempt to even the series with Durfee. Davies substituted for Mello, 
and made an accountable showing for himself, with his accurate passing 
and shooting. The game was well played, with the forward lines of both 
teams featuring. In the last quarter the score was Durfee 45, New Bed- 
ford 40, but Melnick, of Durfee, continued his streak of shooting, and by 
the end of the game he had attained enough points for his team to clinch 
the victory. 

N. B. T. S. — Providence College Freshmen 
Overwhelmed in size, New Bedford was an easy victim of the Friars. 
It was not until the Friar's coach inserted his first team that New Bed- 
ford was outdone. The height of the college boys enabled them to pick 
Tech's passe right out of the air, thereby preventing any offensive. The 
game was exceedingly rough, but Textile held her own very nicely. The 
exceptional defense of the Providence boys made it quite difficult for Tex- 
tile to penetrate to a point inside of the foul line. Cleveland and Aulisio 
were outstanding for Textile. 



BASEBALL — 1933 SEASON 

Textile enjoyed a fairly successful season on the diamond, winning 
close to .400% of the games that were played. The team seemed to func- 
tion the smoothest near the end of the season, when they defeated Holy 
Family by the score of 14 to 1, and Durfee Textile by the score of 7 to 1.

Indications point towards a more successful season this year, as only- 
three regulars were lost through graduation. The squad consisted of: 
Gobeil, Turbak, McArdle, Szynal, Cleveland, Delano, Jasionek, Clarke, and 
Desmarais. The pitchers were Mello, Lewis, Turcotte, Holstrom, and 
Holden. The substitutes were Pickering, Greaves, and Gatonska. 

Manager Norman Edmonson, with tireless effort, held his own 
throughout the season, abandoning all thoughts of ever becoming an ath- 
letic manager again.

TENNIS TEAM 1933 

On returning from the annual spring vacation, Manager Midgley 
asked the tennis candidates to report to Preston Cook, the coach. As 
the first match was scheduled a week away, the team was picked rather 
hurriedly. Those chosen to represent the school were Steve Delano, Bill 
Midgley, Bill Clarke, Ralph Clark, Joe Crowley, Stuart Howland, Henry 
Sherman, and Earle Johnson. 

This team enjoyed only a fair season, winning three matches and 
losing five. All the matches were very close with the exception of the 
game with the Harvard Freshmen. 

The scores: 

Textile 2— De LaSalle 3 
Textile 5 — Dartmouth High 
Textile 3 — Fairhaven High 
Textile 1 — Harvard Freshmen 8

THE SLEUTH HAS IT 

That F. C. is quite adept at hiding his Mr. Hyde (school) complex from 
outside acquaintances, who know only his Dr. Jekyl personality. 

That ever since the Roosevelt Spa met with difficulties, P. E. R. has 
been doing the Hide-away. 

That M. A. has successfully dispensed with all contenders for the P. 0. 
T. F. Possession of the Fort cup. However, it is rumored that 
F. C. may steal his laurels before the close of the season. 

That a certain I. F. becomes much incensed and incidentally quite em- 
barrassed at times because of the likeness of a certain co-ed's name 
with that of that certain girl friend. 

That the "Hi-daddy!" — from the mythical child on the blackboard proved 
much too much for N. E. 

That L. B. has been seen on several occasions now, gazing in rapt awe 
at a certain furniture display in Masons. 

That the male, who "yoo-hoos" under Thelma's window at an hour when 
all righteous people are safely in bed, is in for sudden extinction 
when G. M. A. manages to catch up. 

That to E. M. the bane of his whole existence is that 9:45 and 11:45 
hospital rule. . . 

That E. D. must have been a ludicrous figure indeed upon that cold win- 
try night when he stood in the middle of no-where Filling a tin 
can with water from rusty hand pump. - Cars can be so inconsid- 
erate ! 

That to R. H. there is no time like the present — if the present happens 
to be on a date, in the back seat of a car — to elucidate at great 

length on, "When I was on the farm this summer " P. S. 

We have it that she slept for four hours! 

That J. D. is muchly devoted to that cousin ( ?) on Locust Street. 

That a certain "Clo" from Westport unnerved W. B. more than he cares 
to admit. 

That all in all M. F. is quite a sleuth — but she doesn't know the half of it.

SONG TO THE NORTH AND SOUTH POLES 

In our class we have three Polish waks, 
With me you will agree, 
So we put them all in the general course 
And called the square heads "Ski". 

Chorus: Polish waks, Polish waks, 

"Sleepy", "Wings", and silly "Fat" 
But we have nothing else to do 
So let's call them screwy. 

"Sleepy is the North end Pole 
And the master mind of the three, 
But even he is baffled 
When it comes to C. Y. P. 
Chorus : 

Why "Wings" was born they couldn't say, 
Or find one reason why 
And it was just as hard to tell 
Whether he would walk or fly. 
Chorus : 

"Fat" we call the "Crisco Kid" 
And he is quite a man, 
But the reason that we call him this 
Is because he's fat in the can. 
Chorus : 

I DON'T 

No boy or girl should ever shirk, 
Just when the teacher gives him work. 

I don't. 
No one should ever break a rule, 
By coming late or skipping school. 

I don't. 
If from class, an excuse you get, 
Don't attempt to smoke a cigarette. 

I don't. 
Don't ever forget to study your lesson, 
Or come unorepared for any session. 

I don't. 
When at a dance don't misbehave, 
Nor potent liquor should you crave. 

I don't. 
And after a dance no one should park 
In any place that is quite dark. 

I don't. 
In fact I act just like a Nun. 
You'd think I wouldn't have much fun. 

I don't.

LAB CHAOS 

'Tis half past eight in the morning, 
And the lab is silent and cold. 
Then with much stretching and yawning 
Comes the Senior Class sleepy, but bold. 

"C. C." Murphy, he dives for a funnel 

As sweet Reynolds runs straight for a chair; 

And Ashley slips into the tunnel, 

For a smoke in his hidden lair. 

"Ray" Hiller commences to yodel, 
As Axtell relates a new joke, 
Then Frost pays his bets on football 
And appears to be exceedingly broke. 

"Jim" Davies, he gives us a lecture, 
While Cleveland yells forcibly, "Hooey"! 
Then Edmonson concocts a new mixture 
That knocks all the other boys blooey. 

Miriam applies her red lipstick 

While "Lu" gazes into a mirror, 

Their handbags snap shut with a click 

And their expressions seem quite a bit clearer. 

"Red" Wright, he ducks into a corner, 
And Brandy closes one good eye 
As Dupre seizes a stopper 
And suddenly let's it fly. 

The turmoil is instantly ended, 
For Mr. Busby has entered the scene. 
Each boy his bad manners has mended 
And everything becomes quite serene.

AS I WAS SAYING 

Heroes are born not made. Cast your eye over El Bubbelo. 

Distance lends enchantment. Don't let it fool you Norman E., nothing 

was ever said about 230 miles. 
A barking dog seldom bites. We submit Raymond (Leviticus) Hiller as 

our best example. 
Love is the sweetest thing — but it is hard on the pocketbook, and watches 

don't grow on trees, do they Milt? 
A stitch in time saves nine. Remember that Frank, it eliminates em- 

barassing moments. 
Money is the root of all evil — but then again, Jimmie, ten cents is a paltry 

sum! 
A rolling stone gathers no moss — and neither do beakers, ask any third 

year chemistry student. 
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush — Miriam doesn't think so 

after holding Ed Dupre's pigeon. 
Great oaks from little acorns grow — Take note Dupre, while there is life 

there is hope. 
Handsome is as handsome does — however, Moody leaves the opinion up 

to the "thousands of other people." 
You can't have your cake and eat it — and even hamburgers won't last for- 
ever, Irving. 
Don't count your chickens before they are hatched — Lillian. Life is so 

complex ! 
You can't judge a book by its cover, and in speaking of "Brandy" we 

might also add, still waters run deep. 
Life is just a bowl of cherries — and Miriam believes in taking each pit 

(fall) as it comes. 
The longest way round is the sweetest way home, but in the shortest time 
it is the most difficult, isn't it Eddie M?

A PATIENT CHEMIST EXPLODES 

Old Phil Reynolds is a chemist brave and a patient soul is he 
When he explodes a shot, he may like it not, but a smile is all you'll see. 
Though some men swear and tear their hair and slam apparatus about 
Old Reynolds just grins at his awful dins and cheers with a lusty shout. 

There are times I've known when old P. E. R. was a strong man sorely 

tried. 
But never a word from his lips I heard, though he must have boiled inside. 
And I whispered low : "No man can show such marvelous self-control ; 
There will come a day when he'll blow away his everlasting soul." 

Old Reynolds kept his happy grin almost to the school term's end 

Good luck or bad he still was glad to blow up his best friend, 

But there came a day when success did lay, in the reach of his mighty 

hand, 
For old Reynolds had read a page so dread — That it would startle the 

entire land ! 

He took one look at that book and turned, like a madman on a spree, 
He mixed three things and sure grew wings, for his flight was a sight to 

see 
His coat flew high as he raced by, no doubt he is heavenward bound. 
One thing we know, and this is so, that a new explosive he must have 

found.
